Dark New Day formed in early 2005 and was quickly billed as a supergroup for the active rock set, since its membership came from various name-brand acts. Clint Lowery (guitar/vocals) had been a cofounder of Sevendust, while his brother Corey Lowery (bass) had played in Stuck Mojo and Stereomud; guitarist Troy McLawhorn was a veteran of Doubledrive, and vocalist/guitarist Brett Hestla had been in Virgos Merlot before becoming the touring bassist for Creed. Will Hunt had drummed for acts like Skrape and Tommy Lee. The band debuted with a track on the soundtrack for the spring 2005 horror film House of Wax before issuing the full-length debut, Twelve Year Silence, the following June. Tours with acts like Crossfade and Seether followed. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
